There are many speculations as to who is winning the mental war between Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo going into UFC 194 on Saturday.
10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu founder Eddie Bravo spoke on the Just Roll Podcast to discuss why he believes that McGregor is in Aldo’s head.
“If I had a gun to my head, who wins, McGregor or Aldo? If I had a gun to my head I’m gonna pick McGregor. I think uh, I think there’s a chance that McGregor is deep inside of Aldo’s head. Now I’m not saying I know what I’m talking about, you know, Aldo – if Aldo wins, I’m not gonna be shocked. Anybody can pick that. Aldo has got some vicious leg kicks he’s got world-class Jiu-Jitsu and his striking is uh, you know, right there at the top as well. But I think, I think, I’m guessing McGregor is in his head and he’s fucking with him. But one thing we know for sure, is that McGregor’s power is not a joke. He’s got bricks in his hands. He’s got heavy hands. Everybody that takes a hit, they all drop. So, we know that. And, he’s so unorthodox, he throws head kicks like they’re jabs, know what I mean? He throws those kicks like it’s nothing. There’s a lot of fighters out there that it’s an eclipse when they throw a kick. Every now and then they throw a kick. But, uh, McGregor kicks all the goddamn time, so I dunno. I dunno but if there was a bazooka to my head I would have to go with McGregor.”
